Mobile Robotic Telepresence Systems to Reach US$372M by 2019 Driven by Applications Requiring Independent Mobility, Embodied Presence, and Social Interaction

23 Mar 2015

​The mobile robotic telepresence (MRT) sector will reach US$372M in 2019, up from US$42M in 2014, for a CAGR of 54.4% according to a new study published by ABI Research entitled Mobile Robotic Telepresence Systems. Mobile robotic telepresence systems will find the greatest success in the healthcare, business management, retail, facilities management and operations, MRO, and manufacturing sectors for applications where independent mobility and embodied presence are called for, and where high levels of social interaction are required.

According to Dan Kara, Practice Director, Robotics at ABI Research, “The price and performance level of mobile robotic telepresence systems have greatly improved their overall value proposition, and as a result the technology is generating interest from businesses and public entities alike. Solution providers such as iRobot, Double Robotics, Suitable Technologies, VGo Communications, MantaroBot, and Giraff Technologies have responded producing a range of mobile robotic telepresence products. Organizations that are comfortable with the risk of early-stage adoption should examine the value proposition of MRT systems for telepresence applications that require independent mobility, embodied presence, and social interaction.”
